This is a magical collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling. It is one of the greatest children's books ever written. It is not poetry in the sense that its lines scan, but its imagery is poetic and its plot has allegorical features. It contains some of the finest literary adventures to come to us from the British colonial period. Set in a jungle in India, it is an hypnotic tale that reflects some Victorian values kindred to those found in Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan novels, although in The Jungle Book all such values had to have been carefully screened as they passed through the wise and circumspect Kipling filter. Somehow they do not seem entirely strange and alien today, although they may bear traces of the British writer's experience of regimental life in India and his many travels elsewhere. The author, a friend both of Theodore Roosevelt and American history and lore, was conscious of the drift by rival European powers and the surges of continental militarism. Somehow, perhaps, he allows his values to be colored by this awareness, yet he does not miss a single beat in relating the jungle adventure. The book is unique; no writer other than Kipling could have created it. It tells the story of Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves and the other beasts of the jungle. The behavior of the wolves that accept the boy in their family is as convincing as is the story of the great apes that accept Tarzan in theirs. Kipling is revealing more than that of which he speaks. Mowgli's adventure is a wondrous story, also about the life of every youngster with imagination and the force that is the will to be within him. The author is talking to readers about how to cope with tough problems, and he acknowledges even the hidden dangers that appear from time to time while growing up.Read more ›

I have read the the Disney editions many times for my children since they were babies; now my eldest has reached an age which he can understand and hold a deeper plot. I bought this book with the thought it might be a good idea to start with familiar story. After he reads his Level 1 book, I proceed to read this story to both of my children. Every night they look foward to this story. It has been a great success.

Excellent! I am re-reading a lot of books that were once "required" reading in my High School Literature class. This one was especially fresh and fun to read again.

as my kids were growing up, we read the Disney versions of "The jungle book" and there was a fan morality. However, it was not until I read the Kindle version of the book and began to see and hear my kindergarten teacher reading "rickki tickki tavi, that I had a true memory of the stories in this book. Now outdated, and in sometimes cases politically incorrect, there is a richness here that crosses the barriers of time and culture that carries the reader into old worlds that have become New again.

Despite its age, this book has a lot of humor to it. It has its rough spots though, and that's why I wouldn't recommend it very highly.

Even though I have seen Disney's version of The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling, I realized that the book itself was a bit dark, which was not what I was expecting. Each section of the book starts with a little song or poem, and then adds some detail about what was happening during each event. The main story is about a man cub named Mowgli, who was raised in a pack of wolves. When Mowgli is grown up, Bagheera, a black panther, has to take him to where he truly belongs, in the man village. At the same time, Shere Khan, a Bengal tiger and the main antagonist, tries to hunt Mowgli for his [Shere Khan] food. Baloo, a sloth bear, who ends up being Mowgli's best friend, also protects Mowgli. I believe that the chemistry between Baloo and Mowgli is amazingly catching because nobody could ever realize that a real life person would eventually befriend a bear. I would personally recommend this book to anyone who has seen Disney's The Jungle Book or a huge fanatic of jungles.

Format: Paperback
Drawing upon his experience and memories of life in India Rudyard Kipling, the poet of the Raj, presented the world with a series of stories set in the jungle--especially to entertain children. A far (wolf's) cry from the lighthearted How this or that animal got its whatever salient feature, this collection transports readers directly into the steamy jungle replete with all its dangers: a wolf pack, gibbering monkeys, a vicious tiger, a deadly snake and
rampaging elephants. Although mainly stand-alone stories the core character that emerges is Mowgli, a child lost from his village and literally raised by wolves. (The inspiration for Cub Scouts who must faithfully learn the Law of the Pack.)

To be accepted as one of the Seonee wolf pack two animals must speak for the naked babe--innocently playing with pebbles in the moonlight--oblivious to the debate over his fate. It falls to Bagheera, the black panther, to present a ceremonial kill to the pack, while Baloo, the gentle brown bear, offers to serve as his instructor in jungle lore. Thus is Mowgli, the man-child, initiated into the Pack at Council Rock. As the young boy grows he comes to realize that his most deadly nemesis will be Sher Kahn, the vengeful tiger.

There are other animal characters in the Jungle Books as well: the White Seal who discovers a secret underwater passage to a safe haven for his fellow seals; brave Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, the mongoose, who protects the family's bungalow by going down into the burrow of his deadliest enemy. Do not let Disney--enjoyable as the animated versions are--define these mini masterpieces of literature, for Kipling was adept at his craft; there is no substitute for the original text and authentic flavor of his unedited children's classics.
